A pretty decent lager beer, usual skunk nose but a decent flavor profile. Not a bad little beer.

Bottle poured into a pint glass

Pours a clear pale straw, copper color with a bright white head, slight lacing and retention. Aromas of biscuits, bread, lots of grain, light spice and hay. Tastes follows the nose with biscuit, grains, hay, wheat, touch of spice, and finish is slightly dry with lingering notes of grain, hay, and spice. Mild spice like bitterness, very easy to drink. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a good amount of carbonation, and a dry clean crisp finish.

An easy drinking summer beer, decent amount of flavor, light on the palate, and low ABV is something I like to reach for during hot southern CA days.

Nice foamy head without getting soapy or coarse. Has a pleasant medium earthy, organic, musky, yeasty quality after a nice clear swallow. Very old world European tending towards Mediterranean. It's the kind of beer that makes drinking regular Canadian and American beer difficult afterwards (microbreweries excepted, of course - they ROCK!). Blends nicely with food and is just bitter enough to give it some character. Refreshing and friendly, it should have a broad appeal to both sexes and to all those who don't need more sugar or more bitter. Yum.

The beer is a brilliant golden color and has a foamy head about 1 finger thick and lots of carbonation. Has what I feel is a typical aroma for European beers. It is biscuity but has a little pit of spice to the aroma. The beer follows the nose pretty well, I get those biscuit like malts, slightly sweet followed by a freshness of hops to balance it out. There is a skunky aftertaste in my mouth though. The beer has good carbonation and is crisp.

From the 500 ml. green bottle with a production code of 5225703A00:30. Sampled on December 15, 2016.

It pours golden yellow with a tremendous, lasting white foamy head. Bubbly carbonation.

The aroma has all those Euro-Pilsener esters I like including toasted bread, biscuit, sweet malts, and grassy hops. Just a tad skunky in the green bottle.

Light to medium body and smooth.

The skunkiness is not in the flavor but the toast, sough dough, sweet notes, and grassy hops are. It finishes clean and crisp. I think it was pretty likable and I would have it again.
